Description

5 years ago
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #700201 +++

Just like Firefox have done in bug 700201 we should provide a default minimum version that add-ons older than that won't be compatible for.

Firefox have put this at FF 4 / Gecko 2. I'm proposing we do TB 5 (and still gecko 2). This was the release after 3.1 and had all the extension manager rework, and component registration changes that FF 4 had. Therefore I think it is a sensible baseline.

We'll want this on both trunk & aurora as both of those have the possibility to turn off strict checking.

Of course, I'ld prefer us to use 1.0, but I guess this'll do.  ;)
